This week has been an exciting one, not only because it’s spring break (technically), but because of the work I’ve gotten into for the Wyandotte Daily News and Providence Publishing.
Yesterday afternoon I got the opportunity to go on a media tour of LIVESTRONG Sporting Park as a reporter for WDN. Of course it was also great to see the stadium during it’s construction as a future intern for Sporting Kansas City, but that was just an added perk of covering the event.
I’ve never gotten to go on a stadium tour before (it’s not exactly a common reporting experience, I suppose), but what was most unusual for me was that I was working halvesies as a reporter and photographer. Normally I would never dare touch a camera or try to shoot artsy pictures of construction but I gave it my best and I think the pictures turned out pretty well.
Because WDN operates as a daily web publication, the article went up this morning and you can check it out here: Construction on new KCK soccer stadium nearly finished
Today I also got the chance to leave my WDN job behind for an hour to meet with Sporting’s Executive Vice President Chris Wyche about my summer gig. During the meeting I got the opportunity to see the offices at the Crossroads and learn a bit about what it will mean to be a Sporting scriptwriter.
Needless to say, the countdown to SKC starts today and I couldn’t be more excited.
